Protect Your Furniture
- This model is equipped with non-skid rubber ‘feet’ to prevent the product from moving when you operate the controls. These ‘feet’ are made from non-migrating rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your furniture.
- However certain types of oil-based furniture polishes, wood preservatives or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber ‘feet’ to soften and leave marks or rubber residue on the furniture.
- To prevent any damage to your furniture, it is strongly recommended to purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centre everywhere and apply these pads to the bottom of the rubber ‘feet’ before you place the unit.

Wall mounting should only be carried out by an experienced professional.
